Cook Up A New Kitchen

One of the best ways to improve your lifestyle at home is to change the look and feel of your kitchen. Since you and your family probably spend so much time in the kitchen, this is the room where small changes can make a big impact. You don't have to change everything about the kitchen to make it feel brand new. Why not use the following ideas to cook up a new kitchen in your home?

Replace the Cabinets

Kitchen cabinets attract all kinds of cooking grease and grime from your kitchen activities. Over time, they begin to look weathered and worn. The most dramatic and fastest way to change the entire look of your kitchen is to replace the cabinets.

For your brand new kitchen look, consider getting custom cabinets. Custom wood cabinets not only give your kitchen a unique look, but they allow you to gain dedicated space for your particular needs, such as a food pantry, storage for floor and counter cleaning supplies, and your favorite specialty appliances.

Replace the Hardware

Now that you have new cabinets, resist the urge to install the same hardware. First of all, kitchen knobs and handles are subject to the same kitchen grease and grime that cabinets are. It's almost impossible to get all the grime off of hardware.

Instead, invest in new hardware for your kitchen cabinets and drawers. You can choose from a variety of finishes and styles that will enhance your chosen kitchen décor.

Replace the Flooring

After the cabinets, the kitchen floor is the single biggest transformation you can make in your kitchen. Since the floor takes up so much space, changing it will be instantly noticeable, and transformative.

Choose flooring that is resistant to the kind of wear and tear it will be subjected to in the kitchen environment. For instance, tile flooring is almost impervious to spills and stains, especially when sealed with a topcoat. Vinyl flooring is an inexpensive option that comes in a wide variety of designer looks, and it's easy to clean. Even bamboo floors are now available with sealants that make it appropriate for use in the kitchen. Work with your flooring company to choose a new kitchen floor that works for your lifestyle.

It's amazing how new custom cabinets, new hardware and flooring can completely change the look and feel of your kitchen. These kitchen remodeling ideas will have you feeling like you have a brand new kitchen.
